New Zealand Festival Writers Week


I have done my booking for New Zealand Festival Writers Week 8-16 March 2016.

I didn’t really have to think about it too much – I just booked for everything that was remotely connected to children and young adults because I knew they would all be special. Anna MacKenzie talking about the story that grew into her novel Evie’s War, what sounds like a stimulating and provocative panel discussion chaired by Mandy Hager entitled the Kids Are All Right, storytelling by Paul Beavis creator of Mrs. Mo, Joy Cowley celebrating her 80th year and launching her new book The Road to Ratenburg…

And of course the excitement of overseas writers to add even more riches to the mix.

This year they are:

Cornelia Funke   Image Chicken House
